Cuppa Clubs

We have put together the below FAQs to help explain the role of our cuppa clubs and what you can expect.

What are Cuppa clubs?

Cuppa Clubs provide an opportunity for people to meet and socialise, while also having access to a trained Support and Grow NE volunteer to easily access our services and support. They are also an opportunity to monitor the progress and support of current clients.

Where are Cuppa clubs held?

Cuppa clubs are held in various local cafes and clubs. Each venue is unique and has a different ‘vibe’ or offering. Some, such as Lovaine Gardens, depend on warm weather and so are seasonal. Check out the Support and Grow Facebook page for an up to date list of Cuppa Clubs.

£3 per child entry, our SEND lead Alison will be hosting.

A Support & Grow volunteer will attend each club.

What does it cost? 

Access to the Cuppa Club is free.

Clients are expected to purchase their own drinks and food, except where the venue provides it free of charge. This is done as a goodwill gesture by that venue.

If cost is a barrier to accessing the cuppa club, an arrangement can be made with the volunteer at that club to access a free filter coffee, tea, decaf option or agreed soft drink. 

Who can come along?

Everyone is invited along to our Cuppa Clubs. Children are welcome at all venues too. 

How do I contact you to discuss the cuppa clubs? 

You can contact us via email on or speak to one of our volunteer area managers.
